Update on our Acolyte William  - Glad to see him back! Last Saturday at the 4:30 pm Mass, William was back on the Altar doing what he loves to do. Serving his Parish Community. William is continuing his recovery. Therapies and medical oversight are on-going and this next stage of recovery is time and energy consuming. It is important for William to have someone available for support at all times right now and that is stretching the family a bit thin. The family appreciates all your prayers and the many donations offered. The site to make a donation is (www.youcaring.com/wjgnapa) and the fund at Bank of the West.

In the words of Pope Francis, “even the weakest and most vulnerable, the sick, the old, the unborn and the poor, are masterpieces of God’s creation, made in his own image, destined to live forever, and deserving of the utmost reverence and respect”.

Youth Ministry

"You are our hope, the young are our hope. Do not let that hope die! Stake you lives on it! We are not the sum of our weaknesses and failures; we are the sum of the Father's love for us and our real capacity to become the image of his Son."

-Pope St. John Paul II

Religious Education

”Let the children come to me, and do not prevent them…” Matthew 19:14

As your child ages, his/her understanding of our faith will grow and mature with continued faith formation. Our Catholic faith has so much to offer that, with yearly education in their faith, your child will grow in their love and understanding of our loving God with each year. St. Apollinaris has much to offer our children.
